Payfirma, a Canadian mobile point-of-sale (POS) apps company, has released the Android Mobile Payment App. Already available on the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Blackberry, anyone with a Payfirma merchant account can now accept all major credit cards and Visa Debit on their Android mobile and tablet devices.
The Android app has all the updated features from the recent mobile payment re-vamp released in January of this year. Users will be able to swipe a card, sign on the screen, and send their customers an e-receipt complete with a map of the location of the purchase. Android powered businesses will have access to the real-time sales summary that tracks merchants daily, weekly, and month-to-date sales, location tagging, and multiple language support.
“We’ve been working around the clock to release Android support for our mobile payment application suite,” said Michael Gokturk, founder of Payfirma. “All of our payment software is designed in collaboration with businesses – we build based on what their needs are by focusing on speed, security and efficiency, our customers can easily accept payments on their phones or tablets and focus on making their businesses great.”
